Circle henge


This is the ipad travel app charts, where an interactive iphone app has climbed to number 1. The collaboration between app designers Ribui, Dr. Rupert Till of the University of Huddersfield, and archaeologist Win Scutt, allows you to watch the sun rise and set with a clear sky and no one in the way, any day of the year from the comfort of your own home. It features a digital model that reconstructs the different stone phases of Stonehenge, drawing upon recent archaeology. You can pause the app and zoom around and above the site.

You can also look around and see what the site might have looked like, and even what it might have sounded like. You can see information about other nearby sites, a woodhenge model here, info on the cursus there.

Available for iphones, itouches and ipads, the app is a digital way to pull down the fences, and go to Stonehenge any day of the year.

Happy Solstice!
